The search for an attractive, no-fail houseplant ends with Philodendron, a plant family that includes a large variety of shapes and colours. These are tropical plants, so warm protected conditions are a must: for 10 months of the year in Northern climates, that means inside! Black Cardinal features broad oval leaves that emerge glossy wine-red-bronze and darken to burgundy, almost black, on gorgeous ebony stems. Black Cardinals are not fast growing and rarely flower. Think tropical Hosta with the same preference for shade. They do best in loose, well-drained soil, high in organic matter. Clumping growth habit.
